a square + b square = 80 ft (c Square)

Through trial and error I can tell you that 6 squared (36) and 12 squared (44)are what you're solving for, but I just used trial and error to figure it out.

12 square is 144, not 44

a and b can be a combination of many numbers. For instance, if a is =1, then
b= square root of 79.
